  8. ~~bit Question~~

    Thanks everyone for replyin [Not Worthy] .. and now that told me all that i totally understand that thats whats been happenin, that its been bangin him on the top of the mouth. i never tried to YANK it out though, i also wanted him to spit it out. i got his teeth checked a couple months ago but he was still doin it after that. i am definetely changing bits. what kind of bits do you guys use ?? i have a o-ring snaffle bit but he does the same thing, so im lookin for a straight bar, but hes a barrrel horse and im lookin maybe for somethin different that just a grazing bit. any suggestions??
  9. ~~bit Question~~

    Hi guys, haven't been on here in a while. I have a 10 yr. old paint horse gelding and im currently ridin him with a tom thumb snaffle bit with shanks with a copper mouth piece, ive heard that tom thumbs aren't very good bits and im lookin for a different one, but on tho the problem, whenever i am unsaddling him and i go to take the bit out of his mouth, it gets caught in his mouth and he throws his head up and i dont know what to do?? is it the kind of bit? has anyone else had this problem?? it really scares me and im scared im hurtin him so i would like to find out what the problem is...
